Disney's Art of Animation is all about getting behind the scenes, with rooms themed around animated favorites like The Lion King, The Little Mermaid and Finding Nemo, and bedspreads and murals that feature the same iconic films. Learn about the animation process with pencil drawings lining the check-in area, and sketches becoming more detailed as you progress through Animation Hall. There's even an ornate chandelier filled with storyboards. Although classing itself as a value resort, the largest pool on any Disney property can be found at this Orlando hotel, which is modeled after the setting of Finding Nemo. Free Internet access (fees may apply) and the Landscape of Flavors food court make things convenient for a family on the go.

Neighborhood
One of the official Walt Disney World Hotels, Disney's Art of Animation resort is located near Hollywood Studios in Orlando, across the Hourglass Lake from other Disney accommodations like the Pop Century Resort. The hotel is also near Disney's Boardwalk and the Downtown Disney area - perfect for wandering and browsing among waterfront restaurants and stores. If you need a break from the animation motif, the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex nearby hosts special sports events, and the chance to get on a baseball field or basketball court yourself.
Hints and tips
The Art of Animation resort is comprised of different themed buildings; book a Finding Nemo suite, for instance, to be near the pool.
To save some money, consider the standard rooms in The Little Mermaid building, which contains its own pool and laundry facilities.

Loved the way the whole resort was decorated

What a magical place to take small children! Disney has outdone itself - decorating each suite from Cars, Little Mermaid (not suites) , Nemo and Lion King...pick your favorite movie and you won't be disappointed. This is not a great place for adults/couples...noisy, lights blinking all night, pools crowded with children and the beds were smalll...on the bright side? The master bathroom was great, the attention to detail in each room was super....the soap smells good - orange...and having a kitchenette in the room was a good feature.

Great place to stay to save a little money!!!

This place was clean, great value, and the staff was very helpful! Traveling to the parks was very easy if you utilize the buses. Also, the dining was pretty good. It is pretty much a cafeteria set up. If you are trying to save a buck and still have comfort, this is the way to go!

Nice Piece of Disney For A Couple

This was our bazillionth time to WDW but our first staying "on property". Hotel staff was excellent from the moment we arrived, very helpful and knowledgeable. The room decor was themed from the walls and beds to the dresser and bathroom tile. Although it was basically a motel bedroom, Disney Imagineering hit all the details with this little place. The hotel itself was somewhere between a value & moderate resort by theming standards, and the Landscape of Flavors food court really did have choices for everyone from different cultural backgrounds. Just a few minutes' drive to 3 of the 4 theme parks and Downtown Disney, close to everything & convenient. Eventhough we weren't traveling with children, it did bring out the kid in us & we did find it somewhat romantic as well, despite being a family-friendly spot. I would gladly recommend this place to anyone & would choose this again for my next Disney adventure.
